On Originality

A gorgeous and original hair flower © Mermaiden Creations

This incredibly apt comment came to me via my friend Julie of Mermaiden Creations:
“When you create something original you give birth to an idea and then nurture that idea until it’s mature enough to send into the world. If you copy someone else, you’re depriving yourself of the amazing feeling of creation, of making something that is yours and yours alone. You’ll undoubtedly love and care for the baby you’ve created more than the baby you stole from the grocery store.”
